With a couple months to reflect on the 2013 season, his second with Dallas, Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr still sees himself as something of a work-in-progress.
Carr finished with 71 tackles, 13 passes broken up and three interceptions, including a pick-six. For his Cowboys career thus far, Carr now has 24 passes defensed and six interceptions, and has played in all 32 games. But Carr has had some rough patches since coming to town as well, some of which have been rough enough that some more critical fans have wondered if the five-year, $50 million deal given to him by Jerry Jones back in 2012 wasn’t a mistake.
“Individually, this season was a learning process for me,” Carr said last week, per MLive.com. “I came to Dallas with high expectations, with a chip on my shoulder and a lot of things that I wanted to accomplish as well, and I'm still in the process of doing that, but being assigned each team's No. 1 option each and every week with little to no help. It's fine, because that's the type of games that you want when you grow up, but it was good because I learned a lot about myself.”
